Just have to crow a bit. I recently stated on this forum somewhere that my favorite Imperial IPA is Bale Breaker's Mt. St. Humulus. This is not just because they are from Yakima. I have tried many imperial IPAs including most of the highly coveted examples. This one is my favorite. They are going to release this year's edition tomorrow at the annual Hop Mob in Seattle, and at the brewery. The Washington Beer Blog just announced that Mt. St. Humulus won first place among the ~50 breweries at this year's Hop Mob!
Top Four: 1) Bale Breaker Brewing Company, 2) Georgetown Brewing, 3) Reuben's Brews, and 4) Schooner Exact Brewing Co.
I wish I could send some to you all, but it is only sold by the keg. I'll be at the brewery tomorrow drinking my share... and maybe a bit of yours too.
